Default Singer Creative Touch 1036 Advice

I was given a Singer Creative Touch 1036, which is a nice machine. Pretty much top of the line for the 80s(?) It looks like it will do about anything.

My problem is that I could never get it to wind a bobbin. It is one of the models that winds the bobbin in the bobbin compartment. After a long saga, I thought I'd at least go back to some of the bobbins that had already been wound to at least practice. Then I couldn't even get it to take up thread.

I took it to a Janome dealer and he said the plastic was cracked in the area below the compartment (in the base) and that Singer repairers he knew said not to bother replacing them, that it would never sew correctly again.

So, my question, and I do have one!, is his assessment correct, or should I make more of an effort to have it repaired?

Thanks. Lori
